Summer Pudding Jam

 From Jam Bake by Camilla Wynne, Penguin Random House, 2021

This jam is a great solution for those times when you come home from the farmers' market with a half pint of every berry you couldn't resist buying but aren't sure what to do with them. I came up with this recipe when I moved to a house to a house with my first real honest-to-god garden in the ground and started planting the berries I'd always of growing; black and golden raspberries, black currants and jostaberries. The trouble is, most berries take a few years to get established, so I only had a handful of each the first few years. On their own, each bush's harvest was just a snack, but together they made a jam. This recipe also works well with frozen fruit. If you buy an extra half pint of berries every time you go to the maket, throw them into the freezer and come November, when you're facing the true onset of winter, you can make what tastes like British summer pudding - a mixture of juicy sweetened berries encased in soft white bread. - Camilla Wynne
